As the days get shorter, so sometimes does my patience for putting on meticulous makeup, There are those moments when I just want to reach for a product that makes me look good, fast! New GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper ($27.00) is one of those multi-tasking must-haves. It’s more than a gloss, more than a lip treatment. It’s a travel-friendly lip treatment/gloss/plumper/layering product offering six sexy, semi-sheer, shiny colors, and a clear. All have high wattage shine and tons of beauty benefits.
This lip plumper has so much going for it that having just one isn’t enough.
For starters, it smells like birthday cake (and who doesn’t love cake)?
The delivery system is an elegant, gold tube with a hard plastic slanted tip so you apply the color precisely, easily and quickly.
Used regularly, you may find more firm, soft, hydrated and volumized lips (GrandeLIPS says it’s clinically proven).
We were sent two to try: “Lust Red,” a bright clear red that has enough color to make it an alternative to a lipstick, but a whole lot “kinder” to lips than most. “Midnight Purple” is a very trendy deep royal purple that might be too dark for some as a lipstick, but as a high shine sheer gloss, it’s almost universally friendly to all skin tones.
What’s in GrandeLips?
The key ingredients include hyaluronic acid to target the dry parts of your lips and “Volulip”– a lip plumping substance that will plump lips up in 3-5 minutes. Portulaca Pilosa extra, Caffeine, Niacin conditions and smooths skin, and Marine Peptides (they boost natural collagen production) and Instplump all work together to make moisturizing GrandeLips a beautifying lip treatment that not only provides a momentary tingle and pouty lips quickly but can actually make your lips look better, softer and firmer (over time, 30 days 2x daily).
What’s so Grande about GrandeLIPS?
We could make all sorts of corny uses of wordplay with the word “Grande” in it but you might lose some respect for this feature. So we’ll just say that there actually is a Grande behind this product and the other Grande Cosmetics–Alicia Grande.
Advicesisters.com reviewed her Grande Lash twice (type “Grande Lash” into our search box upper right-hand side of the page if you want to know what we thought of the product) . As to GrandLIPS, we’re pretty excited about it.

The tingle you get from most lip plumpers is of a medium intensity in GrandeLIPS. It’s annoying but not off the charts. The delivery system of a click it pen and sculptured slant-tip top is easy to use and innovative. You can add the lip glosses with color over other products or wear them alone as we’ve been doing to give our lips a rest from more harsh and drying lip products.
While we didn’t try GrandeLIPS twice a day for 30 days, the Before and After photo posted on the GrandeLIPS website looks realistic.
Will GrandeLIPS Give You Kim and Kylie’s Lips?
Uh, who knows? No two people will have the exact same results. Besides, we know that a lip gloss no matter how great is no substitute for fillers (and we’re not suggesting you go get them).
But you will get great looking lips with trendy color that look sexy!
For portability, ease of application, great colors, nice scent, no parabens, gluten-free, and the fact that our lips looked good and felt soft for hours after we used this product just once, we say: Yes, Yes, YES!!!!
